Before I looked into VGA cable, I was thinking to get an adapter where I can use both HDMI cables for one port. However, it didn't work out, and my friend asked me to try VGA instead as the resolution should be the same. Thus, I decided to give it a try, and things turned out perfectly. I put both monitors side by side and can't really tell the difference. So far so good, I love this cable and not planning to switch any time soon.
